"The style of JACUS without label, to inflict one would be an incongruity, even to say that it transcends, exceeds, projects the figuration in a dimension that can not belong, by its formal richness and its chromatic luxuriance that to the innumerable and unlimited dimension of the fantastic
However, JACUS at the feet in the real, in a real that is the wilderness, pure, inviolate, the image of JACUS which is in filigree of his work it is that of a pantheist whose emotional life is an extension of the immediately perceived election subjects.
The art of JACUS is to have somehow subjectively "cinétisé" his works so that each spectator, according to his receptivity, experiences an emotion, either by remaining in the truth of the evocations, or by transposing them into their own projection into the beyond of their appearance.The pictorial expression is at the limit of reality and the imaginary.
